Despite what may be confirmed for the near future, things can still change; here’s the latest viewing of the upcoming Air Jordan IX Retro in the Black/Photo Blue colorway; if you haven’t pointed it out just yet, check out the outsole, which has been changed to a solid black color from the white seen in earlier photos. What remains in the black midsole and the black/photo blue contrast on the upper, but even with the minor alteration to the outsole, these still exude that Penny Hardaway PE goodness, don’t they? More images of the Air Jordan IX ‘Photo Blue’ right ahead, so take a look and let us know what you think of the change. Photos: pure-sole
Air Jordan IX
Gotta pass for the Kilroy's now. I liked em better with white sole, now they just look cheap......er
yes, i was hoping they would do that! that white made em look like fakes. don't pick 'em up, that's more for me!
Nah...these are some shoes that were stitched up in a slow corner store. The white sole in the previous pictures made the shoe, not this Penny PE fake from the quickie mart.
Look a lot better than before. The contrast stitching really isn't so bad. Overall nice, I would like a duller leather though.
@StaynJAYS74 Anything with a jumpman is hott right now, maybe $75.. Haha
@ImpalaLT1 yea i feel u,it almost looks like that carolina 12's blue
@SedrickFinnie But a lot of you were complaining about the white sole before. They look more like the Penny PEs than the others, so whats the problem now?
@LiamLouis The white sole with the photo blue looked so much better. Maybe its just the angle or something, but none of the pics I've seen before this had such shiny black leather. Not coppin if there's no white sole. Btw, when did JB ever confirm a Flynt IX drop?
@jinohnic that leather is the same as they use in the original colorway, white/blk/red. you really don't see that sparkle till you get it up close. i agree though, these look much better. that white made them look fake to me.
@jinohnic I never complained about the shoe. I liked them exactly as they were 1st introduced, now I'm hoping they don't start experimenting with the olives.
You know a few weeks ago I saw new pics of this shoe and they still had a white sole. These could possibly be fakes. They look clean either way.
